Sea Buckthorn Oil
Sea buckthorn contains lots of palmitoleic acid, a building block of our skin that helps heal wounds and scratches. It’s also anti-microbial. The high levels of Vitamin E in this oil make it very moisturizing (it’s one of the highest of all the oils).
The high levels of phytosterols make it an effective anti-inflammatory that reduces redness and itching. The carotenoids, pre-cursors to Vitamin A, offer free radical scavenging and photo-protective effects. The carotenoids and tocopherols are very high in this oil, making it a fantastic anti-oxidant.
Sea buckthorn oil is created by cold pressing the pulp of the berries. It has a characteristic musky scent and is a deep orange-reddish brown colour.
